Granny Square Cardigan Pattern
We couldn’t close out Granny Month without sharing one more showstopping project – Meet: THE Granny Square Cardigan.
We sat down as a team and chatted through all of the details that would make the perfect granny garment, and made it happen! Loaded with tips to customize the pattern for your perfect fit, you can turn colorful granny squares into a literal technicolor dreamcoat.
GRANNY SQUARE CARDIGAN PATTERN
Our granny square cardigan pattern & yarn bundles for sizes S – 3XL are available for purchase in the TNTP shop!
Already have a 5mm hook, and more yarn than you know what to do with? Grab just the pattern.
Currently experiencing color decision paralysis? We’ve curated four different yarn bundles that will stitch together beautifully!
Our cardigan pattern & bundles are available in three sizes:
- Size 1: ~15″ back width
- Size 2: ~20″ back width
- Size 3: ~25″ back width
This measurement is taken across the row of squares where the back panel meets the armhole seam. If you’re unsure what size to go with, try measuring a well-fitting garment you already own for reference!
We’ve also included tips in the pattern on how to decrease/increase this width by adjusting the rows of your squares if you’d like to it to fall somewhere in between the suggested sizes.
Here’s a list of everything you’ll need to crochet your own cardigan:
- Favorito yarn – 1 color for the background, and 3-8 colors for the squares*
- 5mm crochet hook
- Yarn Needle for weaving your ends
- Optional: Stitch markers for hold your squares together throughout joining
*The total amount of yarn you’ll need in each color can vary, depending on the number of colors you’re using, the size of the cardigan you’re making, and the desired length of the cardigan (ex. cropped vs midi length as pictured).
You can find our guidance for yarn quantities for this project in the description here.
Making a granny square cardigan can be intimidating, but I can assure you that the most difficult part is actually finishing the squares. After that, the garment stitches together in no time! If you reach a roadblock (or just need the final push to finish those squares) your new best craft friends are here to cheer you on!
